The General Assembly has adjourned three weeks early--a remarkable move to reduce legislators’ risk of touching the coronavirus. They hustled through dozens of bills, sometimes suspending rules to pass a state budget, an overhaul of the school system, and a plan to rebuild Pimlico racetrack.

We talk to WYPR’s Rachel Baye and Sen. Antonio Hayes, chair of the Baltimore City Demoratic delegation. Find more stories about the General Assembly here.

Plus, an election entirely by absentee ballot. More information from the State Board of Elections here. Confirm your voter registration information here. Request an absentee ballot here. To vote in the primary, voters must make this request by the last week of May - May 26 for a ballot by mail or May 29th for an electronic ballot.
